Without a doubt the coolest, most iconic image from the Japanese classic sci-fi anime titled 'Akira' is that of Shotaro Kaneda’s red-cherry futuristic bike blasting down the highway. That sweet ride has long been the fantasy conveyance of nerds everywhere, but one of the fans has stepped up and made that fantasy a reality.

Since there's no detailed specification. But from several pictures, we assumed this bike uses a water-cooled 4 stroke engine. It also is rear wheel drive with 3 chains and 6 sprockets.
